StarWind V2V Converter Overview

Convert VMDK to VHD and VHD to VMDK for free
StarWind Converter is a downloadable V2V conversion tool for virtual machines. You can use it to convert VMDK to VHD files and VHD to VMDK as well as to IMG file, which is a native StarWind format. This is a very simple but useful file conversion tool that will convert virtual hard drive images from VMware's VMDK format into the Microsoft's VHD format. It is a sector by sector copy operation from one format to the other. It does not modify the source image and will leave it so you can continue to use it.

The unique feature of the free StarWind V2V Converter is that it allows IT administrators to easily migrate any virtual machines from direct attached storage to shared storage on the network in one quick and simple step. Therefore, anyone can move VMDK or VHD images safely to shared storage. This allows virtual server clustering and ensures high application and VM availability. This also means that system administrators will be able to use advanced VMware features such as VMotion, VMware HA, DRS and VCB now that they moved VMDKs to shared storage.


Key Features of StarWind Converter:
• Converts from VMDK to VHD and vice versa
• Sector by sector copy
• Does not modify source image
• Easy to install and use


StarWind Converter is very simple to use:
1. Select your source File (VMDK, VHD, IMG).
2. Choose a location to save the converted data file
3. Click 'convert' and let the converter run
4. Import the resulting file into VMware, Hyper V, or mount the resulting image using StarWind
It settles its job sector for sector reliably and fast. For a 7.5 GB Ubuntu image it needed only approximately a third of the time of Starwind V2V Converter, see http://www.windowspro.de/wolfgang-sommergut/p2v-und-v2v-kostenlose-konvertierungs-tools-fuer-vmdk-vhd-und-xen .

Vmdk2Vhd requires the Microsoft .Net 2.0 framework available via Windows Update and here.
Installation: Unzip the file to a folder of your choosing and run Vmdk2Vhd.exe. We do not have a linux version at the moment.
